Gentile's Lasagna, 500gr.
Red carpet for your Sauces
This lasagna has a filling format that’s wide, rich, and stately. Lay down the most bodily of condiments such as Gentile’s Lasagne with mushrooms, wild boar, deer, and birds of game. Or keep it simple and pleasing by glazing it with a vaporous butter, encrusted with just a few thin slices of Alba white truffle.
What did make Gragnano the World Capital for "maccheroni", when in the XVII century the once-flourishing industry of silk suddenly ceased to exist? Surely its position, right in the middle of the so-called "valley of mills" (30 no longer working water structures); its warm wind - perfect for dessication, the availability of local high-quality durum wheats: after more than 300 years, it seems time stood still for Pastificio Gentile.
Far from the wild massification, from the struggle for the often out-of-control technological expansion strongly conditioning the field of industrial pastas, this small company creates its whole range starting with indigenous "Saragolla" wheats bought only from two selected farms; milled in a plant owned by the Company, at times handcrafted and dried in "Cirillo" method static chambers... Slowly, at low temperatures. The result is a hearty, compact, pasta to bite; whose rough surface seduces sauces and palates - telling, succesfully, History and cultural richness of a naturally vocated area.
